Only 3km away from the centre of Zabljak, Malo (Small) and Veliko (Big) Lakes merge into Crno (Black) Lake. This lake is specific for its dark blue shade of water, which often seems black, and the effect is created by the Lake's depth and the dense Durmitor pine forest surrounding it.

Beautiful lake with amazing hikes you can do in the area. We did the one to Savin Kuk, which was stunning. The views from te mountain were pretty cool. Nice way to combine Savin Kuk and the Black Lakes

Just a 20 minute walk from Zabljak. The view from the lake towards Savin kuk is breathtaking, and if you're here in the summer, don't forget to bring your bathing suit with you, and take a swim.

This is one of the prettiest lakes I have ever seen, great blue color and surrounded by mountains. You can hike around it, and also take a swim during summer.
